Watford Final Draft Local Plan 2018-2036

Representation ID: 1795

Received: 06/02/2021

Respondent: R Kowalewski

Representation Summary:

Applications are going in for development of apartments over the "night club area" of Watford. These must only be allowed with a covenant that residents cannot in the future demand club closure on account of noise. That has happened too many times in the past. Inappropriate development (usually) around an industrial site which is later forced to close on account of residents complaints. Don't let such a situation develop here.

Watford Final Draft Local Plan 2018-2036

Representation ID: 1840

Received: 10/03/2021

Respondent: Hertsmere Borough Council

Representation Summary:

Hertsmere recognises the importance of Watford as a sub-regional retail centre. It is therefore important that any development gives due consideration to impact on existing linkages between Watford and the wider area, and the need for improved accessibility for those travelling from slightly further afield. Furthermore Bushey High Street is in close proximity to Watford and we ask that any impact assessment fully considers the potential implications on all local facilities not just those within the Borough Council boundary.

Agent: Savills

Representation Summary:

Paragraph 5.9 of the Final Draft Local Plan refers to the potential for redevelopment of out-of-centre retail parks to make better use of land by providing new residential development alongside appropriate retail that is easily accessible and well integrated with the surrounding area. This wording should be expanded to include leisure destinations such as Woodside to recognise the potential for intensification and the optimisation of land.
